Chinese beef and broccoli

Another quick stir fry... prepare everything in advance and then just whip it up when you're ready to eat!

You will need :

  • a little more than 1/2 a lb of flank steak thinly sliced across the grain

  • 1 tsp of corn starch

  • 1 tsp sugar

  • 1 tbsp mushroom soya sauce

  • 2 tbsp wine (or vermouth)

Slice meat and marinate in above mixture for at least 30 minutes.


  • 1 small head of broccoli cut into Florette's

  • 1 carrot sliced

  • 1 medium onion quartered

  • 3 cloves garlic sliced in 2

In a measuring cup add:

  • 2 tsp cornstarch

  • 2 tbsp of dark soya sauce

  • 2 tbsp oyster sauce

  • 1/2 cup water to mixture.. Mix together and set aside

Add2 tsp olive oil to a frying pan and add the pieces of garlic for 30-60 seconds. Add the meat and stir fry until just cooked. Remove meat from pan. Add the vegetables all at once. Add 1/4 cup of water and cover for 2 minutes. Add the measuring cup of soy and oyster sauce and stir until thickened. Add more water to get the right consistency. Add meat back into the pan and heat through. Serve with white rice and a green salad... enjoy.
